David G, Private Client
A client’s Aston Martin DB6, inherited from his father, was insured for £100,000. On the way to a family event the DB6 was hit and damaged extensively. The insurer chauffeured the client and his wife to the event, then took the car to his preferred garage.
Repairs were estimated at £110,000. Most insurers deem a car a write-off if repairs cost over 60% of its value. With a Portfolio Policy the client could choose a £100,000 cash payment – but because of the sentimental value he chose repair.
The insurer paid over the Agreed Value and charged no excess as it was a total loss. The car was returned in 6 weeks in perfect order.
